SUMMARY ↠ MZINES.CO.UK ✓ Nathalie Sarraute

Considered one of the major French writers of our century Nathalie Sarraute is the author of several novels plays and essays as well as of Childhood her autobiography A pioneer of the nouveau roman. Imagine you write a novel about a group of people similar to your own circle and living where you live and in your own time bourgeois Paris in the 1930s Then you leave it aside for a while Later you come back to it and see that your novel is too banal the story has been told before in many different perhaps better ways So you begin to dissect it First you lift away the outer layer things like names time locations Then you take your knife to the plot the bones of the story as it were and carefully remove the linking elements that relate each scene to the othersYou examine what you re left with a mass of separate character consciousnesses some touching each other others lying in isolation but all pulsating with their own inner life You think this is what I wanted to convey at the beginning but I didn t know how This gets to the core of the fragility I see in people how each person pulsates with inner life can exist in isolation yet is aware they need others to survive They allow the contacts that are necessary but pull back when their own consciousness seems threatened Sometimes they can t pull back uickly enough when danger looms and even though they might try to sueeze through a space that opens up they become trapped and the powerful consciousness sits on them stifles them They become absorbed into the other losing their own definition Some remain absorbed some succeed in separating into isolation though unable to regain their former shape Tropismes is the startlingly rendered description of such experienceI actually have no idea how Nathalie Sarraute went about writing this unusual book I ve simply tried to imagine the process she might have gone through The reading and the thinking about it afterwards have been so enjoyable that I m now reading another of her books

    This should have been one of my Briefly reviews however my contribution is too minimal for even that warning Instead I’m uoting Sarraute on what ‘tropisms’ are and then providing a uote from the novella itself Make of it what you will From the Introduction What I tried to do was to show certain inner “movements” by which I had long been attracted; in fact I might even say that ever since I was a child these movements which are hid

    Ok this totally kicked Robbe Grillet's ass to the point where I am considering going back and docking him a star because having read this he should be able to see what is actually possible Where his text is all static angles and shadows and tree counting this little book is actually about things there is movement and relations between people and instinct and emotion and intensity even though it likewise is described w
